A good Samaritan is gaining gratitude and praise for helping a woman whose car landed vertically in a ditch on Wednesday morning. The terrifying situation could have been deadly, but a passerby helped save the day.
Yata Yeawolo told WHDH-TV she was driving in Oxford, Massachusetts, after dropping her toddler off at daycare when her car suddenly spun out of control on ice and landed front bumper-first in a ditch.
Yeawolo was hanging on for dear life as she, too, dangled upside down, with no one in sight to view her unfortunate position.
“It just happened so fast. It just lost control and went boom – into the ditch,” she told the outlet. “Nobody could hear me screaming on top of my lungs, I was crying, I had no help, and I’m facing down, my car is up in a tree.”
Then, something incredible happened. A man named Dylan Dauphinee was on his way to work and had to slow down due to the ice. And as he moved down the road a bit more cautiously, he spotted Yeawolo’s car.
Dauphinee was stunned when he stopped to investigate and started yelling, “Is anybody alive?” He found Yeawolo awake and alert inside the upright vehicle.
“I pressed my hand against the glass and said, ‘Hey, are you OK?’” he told WHDH-TV. “And she just looked at me, and I remember her eyes, and her hair dangling over because she’s hung upside down, and she said, ‘I’m OK, I’m OK.'”
He called 911 and firefighters were able to rescue Yeawolo. The two later reunited and Yeawolo thanked Dauphinee and told him, “God sent you to rescue me.” And that’s a sentiment she truly believes, as things could have turned out quite differently.
“I would have been dead,” Yeawolo said. “I’m not supposed to be alive right now.”
It’s truly a happy ending to a rather shocking story.
